Part 2 of my conversation with guest Matt Phillion as we discuss the decade in TV and movies.

Show notes:

- Going over some of our favorites of the decade

- Jay: Haven't seen a lot of critical faves

- Both enjoyed Blackkklansman

- Toy Story 3 is the best of that series

- Matt: Beasts of the Southern Wild was a stunner

- In the Loop is profanely excellent

- Jay never saw Inside Out; Matt says it's borderline educational

- The traumatic sadness of Disney movies

- Don't ban offensive old movies

- Stereotypes in older movies stick out

- The series 24 was so over the top about torture and terrorists

- Writing for women's roles in the '80s was pretty awful

- Post-9/11 jingoism

- Good Sorkin: The Social Network

- Bad Sorkin: The Newsroom

- When older celebs are trending on Twitter

- Matt: In praise of Monsters

- Timothy Olyphant is great

- Matt needs to watch Justified

- Black Mirror is predicting everything

- The Americans is an excellent show

- Matt hasn't seen Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul

- Orphan Black features an amazing performance by Tatiana Maslany

- Bill Hader elevates himself from comic genius to dramatic auteur on Barry

- Russian Doll came out of the blue

- The People Vs. OJ Simpson was excellent, with a bizarre performance by John Travolta

- The sneaky genius of Legends of Tomorrow

- Dark on Netflix is a German show that is brilliantly out there

- Downton Abbey: Cultural phenomenon that doesn't make sense

- The Leftovers got better when it went beyond the book

- The Marvel shows on Netflix were surprisingly good (except for Iron Fist)

- The fight scenes in Daredevil were intense and creative

- So much content out there that it's impossible to see it all
